British award-winning music sensation, Stefflon Don set to perform at the 2019 Afrobeats Reggae Jam Rock in Landmark beachfront in Lagos on Saturday, November 16, 2019, was not in places as the hour passes by.
It gets worse when excellent performances from opening acts potential antidote to reduce your growing pain become expensive. It felt like a live depiction of the hook on ‘Pop’ by Alpha Ojini. The only difference that as the day broke, everything nor just burst, it all festered, According to Pulse.
You know there’s a problem when even CDQ bores the audience. You know there’s ‘Yawa’ when a twerking woman couldn’t move loins. Even worse, bland upcoming artists drain the last of whatever energy you have left. The next issue is that whoever selected those acts should rethink his job. The organizers were terrible and they soiled Stefflon Don’s brand in Nigeria.
The only thing that person did right was have CKay, MOJO, Ajebutter, and Blaqbonez on the roster. But even the timing of those performances was terrible. One of the upcoming acts is a ‘Nigerian in diaspora’ called, Knytro. He was energetic, but he forgot lines to the second song he performed and then told the audience that, “I just wrote that song last week, I can’t remember the lines…”
Ladies and Gentlemen, this happened till 3 am in the morning for a show people got to at 8 pm. Whatever the MCees were doing with their revolving failure at hype hurt souls in gods of MCeeing.
Half the Detty December shows are trash anyways, but when people call a show ‘beyond reckoning,’ let’s rethink that show. Everything was a false start – even the chicken on the small chops was half-cooked while Orijin soared to N500.
The show was truly Jam Rock – Yes, a Jam Rock of impeccable failure of showmanship and organization that runs on a Ferrari engine fueled by speedballing. If there was ever a time to stop something, it’s now. Someone should kill the notion that Stefflon Don has to perform in Nigeria.
She doesn’t need to. As talented as she is, she’s not at that level yet. The organizers should have known better and so should Don’s team. If Stefflon Don is going to put her name on anything, she should ensure its quality. Yes, good money can’t be turned down. But of what use is good money that hurts a brand beyond reckoning.
